Porter-Cable - Tablesaw 3812/3812SPorter-Cable’s portable table saw is powerful and features a good miter gauge and several useful accessories.
A powerful saw with a good miter gauge. The softstart feature eases into the amp load, and the electronic brake is a great safety feature. On the downside, cranking the knob to adjust the blade swings the stand unacceptably from side to side the wobbly stand makes ripping sheets of plywood awkward. Discounting the stand, this saw is solid overall with decent accessories and lots of power. However, the blade guard doesn’t flip out of the way or ride up and down with the blade, and it feels flimsy. While the guard is easiest to remove (no screws, bolts, or nuts), it feels like a throwaway. (We originally tested model 3812 the 3812S comes with the stand.)
